Day off #4 (Bakewell).

Yesterday we had a drive to Bakewell in Derbyshire to spend a few hours there. I have wanted to visit for a while and as we have got a whole week off this week, off we went! First stop was lunch and as Felicini was right next to where we parked we headed inside. It was empty when we arrived but soon filled up with other hungry folk. They had a 2 course for £11.95 type scenario so I had a mixed platter for starters which had hummus, stuffed vine leaves, mozzarella and a few other bits and bobs, followed by a goats cheese pizza. Jonathan had a seafood risotto to start and then steak and chips. We both enjoyed our food and felt stuffed, but ready to do some wandering and sightseeing.

The shops in Bakewell were delightful. We found so many different little shops selling all sorts of nice things for the home and all manner of trinkets. One shop was stuffed full, from floor to ceiling, with antique teacups and saucers and things. I could have spent a million pounds in there! I had to be pried away from there before any damage could be done.

We had a wander up to the church which was very atmospheric and beautiful and then back down through some residential streets having a good old nosy at people's houses.

We had a great afternoon and lots of fun, as we always do together. Bakewell is a lovely little place which I would recommend visiting if you fancy a few hours somewhere. I stopped off for a bakewell slice before we went home which I had all to myself as Jonathan doesn't like them. Bonus!

Have you been to Bakewell? Or do you live here? Lucky you!
